Dan Dan Mien

Have you ever been to the business class lounge in Hong Kong for Cathay Pacific ?

They have this dish that they call Dan Dan Mien. It's pretty much a noodle soup, with this spicey peanuty sort of flavoured broth. It looks a bit brownish, and tastes amazing. Whenever I fly through the Hong Kong airport, I crave it like crazy and try to have at least two bowls of it.

I know it's not ramen, and it seems as though you have to eat the noodles quickly cause it absorbs the soup really fast. By the way, it is a noodle soup, not something dry.

I think they call it Dan Dan Mien. But I'm not sure. Anyways.... would anyone have a recipe that taste similiar to it ?
